Recycling Technologies Can Transform Waste into New Textiles

The textile industry is one of the primary contributors to environmental footprints, responsible for 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Despite legislative pressures and climate emergency stressing the need for science and innovation, every year, around 92 million tons of textile waste is produced across the world. Unless textile manufacturers in India and overseas take drastic measures to improve the scenario, this number is expected to reach 130 million tons by 2030.
